Golden Bay Air Spotted At Wellington

Golden Bay Air's Piper Pa32 Saratoga, ZK-ZIG gets airborne from Wellington on 4 February 2010. Golden Bay Air run a daily scheduled service from Wellington to Takaka and from Takaka to Karamea using ZIG and Piper Pa28-161 Archer ZK-EQS. The air service was originally started by Capital Air in 2006 but last year was rebranded as Golden Bay with the Saratoga being based at Takaka. The company told the Golden Bay Weekly in September last year that they would like to see Takaka airport developed, including the sealing of the cross runway and provision for a GPS approach. They could then look at the possibility of a larger aircraft. In more recent times Golden Bay Air has moved its Wellington arrival and departure point from the Aero Club to Capital Jet Services on the main terminal side of the airport.
